Birney is a great school. My son attended last year and is returning this year. My only problem with this school is that it's over crowded but what school isn't? There are some wonderful teachers here and great staff. Go Birney Bobcats!

Birney is a wonderful school with an incredible group of dedicated teachers and staff. I can't tell you how lucky I feel to have my children attend a California Distinguished School whose API has increased 80 points over the last four years. Look for more great things to come!
